Slow Hand Stout, Brewed and Packaged Only {"Only"?} by Lucette Brewing Company, LLC. Menomonie, Wisconsin.




On one side the slogan reads on top of the can, "Craft beer, hand-crafted", and on the other side "Friendly with a glass." Huh? The label art seems to depict a naked, nubile young lady in profile, wading in a lake. I'm guessing.
1 pint/16 fl. oz., 5.2% ABV.

Appearance: solid darkness, rich, creamy, coffee-toned head, looking very good.

Aroma: softly roasted and toasted, dry and slightly bitter, a whiff of dried fruit.

Taste: Enters the palate creamy, smooth, and tasting faintly of peanut butter. That's probably just me. Roasty-toasty, medium-bodied, with a fast, forgettable finish. This one needs more more. Just does. It's alright. But, anything can be alright.

This stout does have it's merits. There's character here, but not enough of it. Not enough to care.

What's the gobbledygook say? Well, it's in all-caps, but I'll edit that: "time passes at a constant. Much like the changing of the seasons. Euphoria and heartbreak/jubilation and despair/Camaraderie and solitude/ From our darkest hour to our greatest accomplishments we share a common bond towards one another living for instances of simple enjoyment. We made Lucette for each and every one of these moments."

So, question, Lucette: was this one made for the heartbreak, the despair and the solitude?

My first sample of Lucette @ the stout ale house.

Looked good and dark, light comes through around the edges.
Smelled great, nice and roasty the way I like it, hints of chocolate.
Did not taste as good as it smelled, it felt like something was missing.
The mouthfeel was weak, oddly light bodied for a stout.
Drinkability is a yes, you could easily dump a couple down your throat.

Dark thin pour black pour. Big earthy chocolate aroma. Initial taste was lots of bitter and lots of roasted malt. Almost too toasty, as in almost tastes burnt. Still, was a decent beer.
